13 CBD Products To Use for Sleep, Skin, and Beyond
From skin saviours to stress busters, these are the best ways to use the internet’s favourite oil
words Team Woo
Short for cannabidiol, CBD is the second most prevalent active ingredient in cannabis after THC. We’re sure you already know this, but we shall reiterate it anyway: CBD does not get you high – that’s what THC does. Still, it’s precisely because of this that many people favour it over the psychoactive stuff. So, what can it help with? Well, quite a few things. From period pain and insomnia to skin complaints and stress, here are the best CBD products for a variety of uses.
Best for skin
Retinol in Purple
Bakuchiol Booster, BYBI
If you’re at a stage in life where you’re considering bakuchiol (a natural alternative to retinol), chances are you’re somewhat wise. Boost that feeling of wisdom with bakuchiol packaged in purple.
FYI your face needs some timeout too
CBII - Nourishing CBD Face Oil
If your skin is crying out for hydration and nourishment, look no further than this CBD face oil for a bit of relief. Your face will go from irritated to enchanting in a hot minute.
Best for a workout
The secret to recovery
CBD Infused Protein Power - Chocolate Chip
Gone are the days when excessive snacking was – quite wrongly – the most active thing associated with CBD. Now, even protein powders are infused with it, and for good reason: it’s thought to minimise recovery time (and that’s in addition to the psychological and physiological benefits we shall keep banging on about).
Meet your muscles best friend
CBD Muscle Gel
The good news? This CBD muscle gel may well be the answer to your body aches. The bad news? You have one less excuse to skip exercise.
Best for your period
Say goodbye to hormonal skin flare ups
Fewe - Skin Cycle Set
If you have periods, there may be a chance that they put your skin through various degrees of hell at each stage of the menstrual cycle. The solution? A serum for each one. Luckily, FEWE have a set of CBD serums offering exactly that.
Best for anxiety
CBD Drops to Decompress
Goodrays - CBD Zen Drops
To the tune of SZA’s “Good Days”, pick up some of Goodray’s CBD drops and lean into ‘Cannot Be Disturbed’ mode. What’s special about these CBD drops is that they are extracted from premium Colorado-grown cannabinoids. Easy to dose and pleasant to taste (100% vegan flavours too), rather than feeling drowsy, this will help maintain your natural state of balance and sense of wellbeing.
Did someone say CBD sweets?
Zenbears - CBD Gummies
If you want the benefits of CBD without the earthy taste of hemp or concerns about how many drops is too many, CBD gummies are the answer – and these are vegan!
Best for stress
Drink yourself happy
TRIP - Lemon, Basil CBD Drink
Constantly reaching for booze when you’re stressed? Reach for a spritz by TRIP instead. Infused with 15mg of CBD, it’ll make you feel infinitely better without even the hint of a hangover to contend with. And each flavour tastes amazing.
A fruity taste of perfection
Goodrays - Passionfruit & Pomelo, Natural 30MG CBD Seltzer
The combination of passion fruit and pomelo is tantalising enough, but combined with 30mg of CBD in the form of a sparkling drink? Irresistible.
Calming CBD Candle
cbii - Unwind CBD Candle
In our pursuit of an anxiety-free life, we cannot possess enough candles. This one contains the soothing scents of lavender, neroli and bergamot to make you feel all relaxed. The fact it’s made out of hemp wax – one of the most sustainable materials on the planet – is a bonus too.
Pick a flavour, any flavour
Love Hemp - CBD Oil Drops
If you’re looking for a mild strength CBD oil with a graduated pipette for easy dosing, this is perfect. The best thing about it, however, is the fact it comes in several flavours including Valencia orange and wild cherry.
Best for sleep
Get ready for a great night Zzzzzzz
OTO - CBD Sleep Drops
As lovely as it is, a good night’s sleep can be evasive – not with OTO CBD Sleep Drops in the picture, though. Formulated with a lovely blend of botanicals, this will align with your natural sleep cycle without making you feel drowsy.
Carry relaxation everywhere you go
OTO - Balance CBD Roll On
The more relaxed you are throughout the day, the better you will sleep at night. Actualise this with a roll or three of OTO’s Balance. Blended with lavender, chamomile and cajeput, it smells divine too.
